Independent certification from a public health organization means four NaturaNectar products have been tested and certified to meet the requirements of NSF/ANSI 173, the American National Standard for dietary supplements.
SUNRISE, Fla., July 26, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Bee Propolis Ultimate™, Red Bee Propolis, Green Bee Propolis, and Brown Bee Propolis from NaturaNectar LLC recently earned independent certification from NSF, a global public health organization. NSF certification helps consumers identify products that have been independently tested and certified to meet rigorous standards for quality, safety and label claims.
Since its inception in 2009, NaturaNectar has been striving to provide health-conscious customers with the highest quality, purity, and potency bee propolis products from the Brazilian bio-diverse environment. The company has grown to a line of fourteen SKUs, including dietary supplements and cosmetics and has significantly invested in quality controls to help ensure its promise of superior products. This certification is essential in a crowded marketplace where customers are challenged to choose what propolis products to take.
“Achieving NSF Content Certification (NSF/ANSI 173) is a testimony to NaturaNectar’s firm commitment to protect and activate customer’s wellness. It is one more brick in this quality pathway we have strived to build between our Brazilian apiaries and customers’ hands,” said Dr. Daniel Oliveira, NaturaNectar’s Head of Quality.
NSF facilitated the development of NSF/ANSI 173, the American National Standard for dietary supplements, which are continually updated with the changing industry. To earn NSF certification, supplements must be manufactured in a facility that is inspected annually to comply with the U.S. FDA’s Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) requirements and industry best practices. In addition, NSF-certified products undergo a variety of tests and reviews, including:
- Toxicological review of product safety, formulation, and label claims
- Contaminant testing for harmful levels of specific contaminants like pesticides, lead, and arsenic
- Label claims to test to verify what’s on the label is in the package
- Ongoing monitoring to verify compliance through periodic auditing and testing
“When consumers see the NSF certification mark on a product, they can be sure that product has been tested and certified according to strict standards for quality, safety, and label claims,” said David Trosin, Managing Director, Global Health Sciences Certification at NSF. “We’re very pleased to grant NSF certification to NaturaNectar’s Bee Propolis Ultimate™, Red Bee Propolis, Green Bee Propolis, Brown Bee Propolis.”
